RailHawks move up to third: Adjusted USSF-D2 table, week of May 31

Posted by on Mon, May 31, 2010 at 12:48 PM

Happy Memorial Day and welcome back to the latest edition of Triangle Offense's adjusted table. As we explained in our inaugural outing, due to the erratic scheduling of USSF-D2 league play, it's a little tricky to keep track of relative performance unless the points totals are adjusted to a per-game basis.

The Austin Aztex are still in first place as their excellent form continues. Two teams have made big moves up: The FC Tampa Bay Rowdies should no longer receive the condescending qualifier "expansion team," for they're in second place—right on the heels of the Aztex.

And the Carolina RailHawks, who began the season slowly (and were in eighth place on the last adjusted table), are now tied for third after two huge road wins over Puerto Rico and Montreal.

At the bottom of the table, a clear underclass is emerging: NSC Minnesota and AC St. Louis are in the midst of dreadful seasons. Minnesota is more than a third of the way through its schedule and is picking up only .9 points per game.

And AC St. Louis is having a truly terrible inaugural season. The franchise is struggling to stay afloat financially; last week, they threw the women overboard. Although they're drawing decently (more than the RailHawks), Claude Anelka's team has been dreadful, picking up only four points from nine games.
